CYBB - The Cornish Charity That Helps Young Brass Band Musicians Take Their Playing to New Heights

Band members benefit every year from two four-day residential courses. These are directed by leading conductors from the brass band world, and outstanding levels of performance are achieved in the Gala Concerts that provide the climax to every course.



Please help us to help produce the musicians of tomorrow.
We now have to raise over 20,000 a year to fund this work. 100% of every 1 you donate will help our young musicians.

All our Trustees and local tutors give their time without charge.

Archive: Other Concerts

The band always concludes its courses with a public concert.  Full details of these, and of some other events, are given in the Archive.  The band has, however, given a number of other concerts over the years, and those that we are aware of are listed below.  If you know of more, please provide details to the Administrative Contact.

In addition to the concerts listed below, we are aware that the band participated in a Christmas Celebration of Brass and Voice on BBC Radio Cornwall but we do not know in which year.   In the early years, the band also made recordings for BBC Radio 3, including ones when the band was conducted by Geoffrey Brand and Sir Malcolm Arnold.
